I'm having one Rs. 500 note with back side impression coming on front side. Can any one tell me what type of error is this and what's it worth.

It's called offset error. Wet ink is transferred, normally in a mirror image, of a portion of one side's design onto the other side. This occurs when currency paper is not fed properly and ink ends up on the printing press cylinder instead of the intended currency sheet. The still wet ink on the cylinder is then transferred to the next sheet to come in contact with it.

Thanks Rony for the valuable info. One more thing I would like to know, is there any premium associated with it?

Anytime mate :)
Offset errors are the most common form of printing error and hence they are worth little premium over face unless it's something drastic IMO.
